The Mount Reflects: The Division of Arts and Letters

by

This week at the Mount, we are celebrating the Division of Arts and Letters, which houses English, Communications, Media Studies, Hispanic Studies, and more. We’ve talked about how the division has a strong family feeling, but what do current students and recent alumni think of the Division? Let’s ask them!


“I love that I have the freedom to be creative and exposure to a variety of texts and ideas. The professors are eager to let you create and express yourself while at the same time not overwhelming you with tedious work.” – Matthew Anastasi, English major seeking certification in Adolescence Education, Class of 2018

“I think one of the most enjoyable parts was how encouraging everyone in Arts and Letters is. They are always willing to give you a chance to express yourself creatively, and they are always willing to help you when you need it.” – Madison Beckman, Journalism major, Class of 2017 Continue Reading

My First Year – Testing Tips

Hey​ ​there!​ ​My​ ​name​ ​is​ ​Natalya​ ​Hoover,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​have​ ​just​ ​started​ ​my​ ​freshman​ ​year.​ ​I​ ​came​ ​to the​ ​Mount​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​a​ ​career​ ​​in​ ​Psychology​ ​in​ ​hopes​ ​that​ ​after​ ​graduation,​ ​I​ ​can​ ​continue to​ ​help​ ​individuals​ ​for​ ​a​ ​living. ​​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​

As​ ​my first finals​ ​week​ ​approaches,​ ​I’m​ ​not​ ​going​ ​to​ ​lie​ – ​I​ ​am​ ​nervous.​ ​Testing​ ​is​ ​nerve-wrecking,​ ​ ​but​ ​really,​ ​a​ ​final​ ​is​ ​just​ ​another​ ​test​ ​of​ ​what​ ​we​ ​learned throughout​ ​the​ ​course.​ ​

Mount Saint Mary College ​has​ ​several​ ​academic​ ​tools​ ​open​ ​to​ ​us​ ​to​ ​help​ ​with​ ​test preparation. ​​In​ ​the​ ​Dominican​ ​Center,​ ​for example, you can gather some friends and ​reserve​ ​a​ ​study​ ​room. Surrounding​ ​yourself​ ​with​ ​the​ ​ones​ ​you​ ​love​ ​the​ ​most​ ​could​ ​help​ ​reduce​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​of​ ​that​ ​test​ ​anxiety feeling.​ ​While​ ​you’re​ ​all​ ​working​ ​hard​ ​studying though,​ ​don’t​ ​forget to​ ​take​ ​a​ ​few​ ​breaks!​ ​Take​ ​a walk​ ​around​ ​campus​ ​and​ ​enjoy​ ​the​ ​fresh​ ​air.​ ​ Continue Reading

Time Management

Annalise Hansen – sophomore History and English major: “Don’t wait until the night before the test to study. Break the information down and go over it piece by piece.

My name is Olivia Mulhern, and I am a sophomore here at the Mount. When I started at the Mount, I applied and was accepted into the Nursing program.

However, I thought Nursing was my perfect career choice. I had the inspirations and grades for the program and career. Most importantly, I had the passion for it. Continue Reading
